A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN As we set our sights on the future, we are pleased to present the Louisiana State University College of Agriculture Strategic Plan 2025. The College of Agriculture began a strategic planning process in July 2019. We started with an internal committee within the dean’s office to lay the groundwork for the planning process and to help organize the key questions we needed to reflect on to move our college forward. Department heads, school directors, and the dean’s office staff then came together to evaluate our strengths and weaknesses to create a focused structure on the crucial initiatives we want included in our plan. Subcommittees worked within five concentrated areas that developed into our overarching goals and helped create the metrics to measure our progress. To help ensure that both internal and external stakeholders could provide guidance on experiences, challenges, goals, and future initiatives, we conducted a stakeholder survey in the Fall of 2019. This feedback was compiled into the 2019 Stakeholder Survey Report and shared with our leadership as well as our internal and external stakeholders. The information provided in this report was critical to guiding our process in drafting out the strategic plan. Our final step in this process before unveiling the plan you see today was to host a Virtual Stakeholder Summit in Summer 2020. This event brought together faculty, staff, alumni, and other key stakeholders to participate in roundtable-style meetings to discuss the draft of the strategic plan, future initiatives within the departments and schools, and to reconnect our stakeholders with the mission and vision of the college.

Dr. William B. Richardson Dean and Vice President for Agriculture

The time and work that was put into this effort created a clear vision to guide us through the next five years. I would like to thank our leadership, faculty, staff, and stakeholders who engaged in this process, and I encourage you to stay involved and hold us accountable as we work with intention to meet the goals outlined in the LSU College of Agriculture Strategic Plan 2025.

GOAL

2

Seek to achieve a culture where everyone in the college is included, respected, and supported.

This goal is under review with the hiring of the new assistant vice president (AVP) for diversity, inclusion, and opportunity. This section includes a summary of current initiatives in place. In the fall of 2019, the dean’s office began the discussion of strategic hires focused on diversity, inclusion, and opportunity initiatives. The decision was made to move forward with an AVP position that would serve over this area for both the LSU AgCenter and College of Agriculture. The new AVP will begin on Feb. 1, 2021. Since that time, additional efforts have been put forward to building a stronger foundation on the practices and culture created specifically for the student experiences within the College of Agriculture. This section includes some of the focused efforts that have been put into motion or have been created in previous years focused on diversity, inclusion, and opportunity. At the direction and leadership of the new AVP, goal two of the College of Agriculture’s strategic plan will be outlined with specific initiatives and performance indicators to further guide the college’s practice in creating an inclusive culture. This information will be updated in the annual report for 2021.

GOAL

2

Seek to achieve a culture where everyone in the college is included, respected, and supported.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives • Communication with students: In the summer of 2020, the CoA Dean’s Office staff worked on a statement with Dr. Richardson to be shared with the undergraduate students, faculty, and staff within the College of Agriculture (full statement can be found at bit.ly/LSUCOADEI). • Listening to current students — Dr. Richardson also conducted listening sessions with the MANRRS (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences) chapter as well as discussions with Les Voyageurs and Peer Mentors. He also addressed the focus of creating an inclusive environment with the Ag Student Association. • Communicating with future students — A welcome video from Dr. Richardson was created to be utilized at CoA recruitment events on campus. The message in this video was direct and highlighted that the CoA values the diversity of our students.

11

• Resources for learning and reflection: • Independent/team learning — Sections of the dean’s office completed educational training on topics within diversity, equity, and inclusion over the summer. (Diversity and Resiliency Institute of El Paso modules and weekly debrief discussions by Recruitment and Student Development staff.) • Allyship discussion — The CoA Dean’s Office hosted two guest speakers in the summer of 2020 to discuss allyship and what that means for how w e serve our students and other stakeholders. This was the start of continued discussion and focused on how we can develop additional training, discussion, and support efforts to ensure we are upholding inclusive excellence in our college. • Diversity and inclusion modules — A project emerged to pilot diversity and inclusion resource modules through Moodle in the summer of 2020. This project was worked on with campus partners, including the LSU Office of Multicultural Affairs. Representatives from the MANRRS chapter were also involved in the creation, editing, and continued development. The pilot was provided to the Peer Mentors, Les Voyageurs, and Ag Student Association for edits and feedback. With the creation of the recent Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Change Council in the CoA/AgCenter, members of this council have also reviewed the materials and provided critical feedback. The current state of this project has morphed to include personal interviews with current students on their experiences related to the topic areas to add to the materials. The projected launch date for the modules to be available collegewide will be January 2021.


GOAL

2

Seek to achieve a culture where everyone in the college is included, respected, and supported. •

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives • Staffing and student workers: • A proposal in the fall of 2019 was provided to the deans regarding hiring a staff position associated with the first-year experience and diversity/inclusion initiatives. The position was tabled due to the spending freeze with COVID-19, but there are plans to revisit this after the AVP is hired. • The intentional focus has been on connecting with students of color and identifying student leaders to take on student employment positions within our College of Agriculture Dean’s Office. This has resulted in the hiring of three new student employees within the areas of retention, career development, and communications. Student services currently has plans underway to work strategically with the MANRRS chapter on promoting these professional opportunities for spring 2021.

12

Environmental audit: In revisioning the way we create spaces for our students that are inclusive, the College of Agriculture Dean’s Office staff worked on some specific projects to ensure that we are helping students envision themselves as future successful alumni within the College of Agriculture and that we value our diverse population. • Alumni posters — Throughout the buildings that house our departments and schools, alumni posters were framed and put into places that are commonly accessed by students. This project was focused on the intention of highlighting our diverse majors and alumni in the field. • Timeline and values — In the main administrative building, an outline of key areas within the CoA’s mission and vision has been displayed. Within this display, our MANRRS chapter is highlighted as well as the overall values of the College of Agriculture. We also included a land acknowledgment statement to reflect on the lands that our campus resides. • Major highlight videos — For use in the AGRI 1001 class (Intro to Agriculture), Major of the Day videos were created with the intention of highlighting diverse students and perspectives. These were shared weekly with students in the course.


GOAL

2

Seek to achieve a culture where everyone in the college is included, respected, and supported.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives • Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Change Council: The council was created in the summer of 2020, and nominations were submitted to an internal committee within the LSU AgCenter and College of Agriculture for the council members. Council seats were also granted to representatives from MANRRS and the Agriculture Student Association (ASA). Twenty-six members of both the LSU AgCenter and College of Agriculture serve on the council, with four additional ex officio members.

• MANRRS, (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences): MANRRS at LSU members promote the advancement of members of ethnic and cultural groups that are underrepresented in agricultural and related sciences. MANRRS is a national society that welcomes members from all racial and ethnic groups interested in careers in agricultural and related sciences. MANRRS supports professional development of minorities through its network, acting as a springboard for entry into and advancement of careers. The organization helps establish partnerships among its student and professional members while promoting scholarly achievement in a nurturing environment.

• Diversity & Inclusion Champions: A proposal for the council to review regarding identifying those faculty and staff leaders across the college who could serve as supporters and advocates for diversity and inclusion within their departments/schools. The application process was launched in November 2020, and applicants were selected in December 2020, with the official program launch set for January 2021. • Cultivating Change Organization: Tigers for Cultivating Change was established for the expressed purpose of providing a safe, inclusive network for students interested in agricultural sciences who are a part of or allies of the LGBTQ+ community. Focusing efforts on advocacy, education, and community, this organization will strive to promote inclusion and visibility for LGBTQ+ individuals within the College of Agriculture and larger Louisiana State University community.
